Big Bambù

What seems to be the attraction?..

With 5000 bamboo poles and 50 miles of nylon rope,
2 Twin brothers Doug & Mike Starn will be building, all summer long,
a structure on the roof terrace of the Metropolitan Museum
Visitors will be allowed to ascend and walk 20 to 40 ft above ground level.

Mais quelle est donc l'attraction?...

2 freres jumeaux Mike et Doug Starn ont choisi de construire
pendant tout l'ete, une structure toute en bambou
sur laquelle il est possible de monter et se promener.
Elle atteindra a la fin de l'ete a peu pres 15m au dessus du sol.
Ceci fait partie de l'exposition de la terrasse sur le toit du Metropolitan.

That sounds amazing! I will love to see the final structure.

original cette idee, meme si vu d'ici cela semble bien fragile

Wow - looking forward to seeing more!

ce doit être génial , tu vas nous faire suivre la construction et nous faire partager la promenade ;)

Y monter ? Hmm, c'est si solide que ça ?
Très beaux nuages sur la skyline...

Very impressive piece of bamboo. I used to see this stuff used, in Japan, for some amazing scaffolding that went up beside buildings. And it was there that I learned that some bamboo is as big around as telephone poles. Hard to hold up while fishing.

Le bambou est aussi à l'honneur chez nous ...

Seems like quite an effort! Wonderful pictures!

euh je ne suis pas sûre de vouloir vraiment monter sur un truc pareil, ça n'a pas l'air très solide, mais peut-être que si olivier me tient ainsi que ceciel, on va y arriver. :-) bises et bon WE de l'autre côté de l'océan.

Are you sure that is art? It look like a bunch of beavers have run amok:)

I wonder how many building codes are broken are being broken here.

j'attends la photo de ton premier test "en Jane"

Looks fascinating. I wonder how they are getting around the health'n'safety stuff?

J'vois des sceptiques qui ne participent pas, là !

Jacob June 28, 2010 at 6:41 PM  

Well, that's a rather amazing piece of art. But I don't think you're gonna get me walking 20-40 feet above ground on a bunch of bamboo poles. Bamboo is for Pandas! ;-)

LOL at Jacob's comment! Hope you will show us this when it's finished, I'm really curious now! :-)

Il y a aussi..There is also...
